Comment on proposed listings

Anyone can comment on whether an item should be listed on the NSW State Heritage Register.

When an item is nominated for listing, the Heritage Council notifies local media and invites property owners and managers, members of the local community, local council, broader stakeholders and members of the public to make a written submission.

Process for submitting comments

  1. View nomination listings and final closing dates:
    • Nominations currently under consideration for listing
    • Items currently under consideration for removal
  2. Click on the item name to view further information about the history and heritage significance held on the online heritage database.
  3. Download the State Heritage Register Criteria. It lists information that outlines different ways an item might be of State heritage significance. The Heritage Council uses these criteria when recommending a final decision to the Minister for Heritage.
  4. Make a written submission before the closing date.

What information should you include in your submission?

Your submission might consider:

  • If the item is or is not of State heritage significance
  • What the advantages and disadvantages will be e.g. reasonable economic use, conservation, financial implications.
  • Additional information such as historical context, diagrams or maps.
